$f = $parent->LabFrame(?-label=>text, -labelside=>where, ...?);
DESCRIPTIONLabFrame is exactly like Frame and additionally allows one to add a label to the frame.
WIDGET-OPTIONSLabFrame supports the same options as the Frame widget.
Additional options of LabFrame are:
- -font => font
- Specifies the label's font
- -foreground => color
- Specifies the label's foreground color
- -label => text
- The text of the label to be placed with the Frame.
- -labelside => where
- Where can be one of left, right, top, bottom or acrosstop. The first four work as might be expected and place the label to the left, right, above or below the frame respectively. The acrosstop creates a grooved frame around the central frame and puts the label near the northwest corner such that it appears to ``overwrite'' the groove.
- -labelvariable => scalar_ref
- Specifies a reference to a variable and used as an alternative to -label. If the value of the variable changes, then the widget will be updated automatically to reflect the change. Used like -textvariable.
ADVERTISED SUBWIDGETSSee ``Subwidget'' in Tk::mega how to use advertised widgets.
Frame used to display the border
Frame used to create new LabFrame children.
Label used for displaying text
EXAMPLERun the following test program to see this in action:
use strict; use Tk; require Tk::LabFrame; require Tk::LabEntry; my $test = 'Test this'; my $mw = Tk::MainWindow->new; my $f = $mw->LabFrame(-label => "This is a label", -labelside => "acrosstop"); $f->LabEntry(-label => "Testing", -textvariable => \$test)->pack; $f->pack; Tk::MainLoop;
BUGSPerhaps LabFrame should be subsumed within the generic pTk labeled widget mechanism.
